Representative Text

1 The mighty hills encircling
In splendor tow’r above,
So God His own shall e’er surround
With His unchanging love.

Rejoice, rejoice
In pow’r and might, In song and light;
Rejoice, rejoice
In mercies ev’ry morning new;
Rejoice, rejoice,
His love proclaim, O bless His name!
We praise Him for His wondrous works,
We yield Him homage true.

2 The skies in beauty bending,
Unclouded shine and fair,
So bends a Father, tender, kind,
With His unceasing care. [Refrain]

3 The world in vernal glory,
Shall own the Master’s sway,
So we would own our King of kings
And hail Him Lord for aye. [Refrain]
